A little over a year ago, and this is still a Jackie Greene stand-out show. The first set really gets into a nice groove, right out of the gate. Early examples are I Don't Live in a Dream, Gone Wanderin', and Animal. But, it is New Speedway that really kicks things into high gear. In fact, I recall thinking at the time that it would be a set closer, it was such a raucous and rowdy version, complete with audience sing-a-long... "One Way Or Another, This Darkness Has Got To Give". Stranger in the Stand is, however, a nice cool down to send us into the set break.

Set Two only gets better. Highlights include an outrageous, Tell Me Mama, with Jackie showing his chops on Organ. A very soulful and raunchy version, to say the least. Things really start to take off with Hollywood > Taxman > Tomorrow Never Knows. Scarlet is a fine surprise that keeps all of us in the audience jumping and dancing. Next up, Ball and Chain. It brings down the house. What an incredible reading of this, now, Jackie classic. And could have very well been the highlight of the night. Sugaree is an outstanding penultimate encore, with a ridiculous solo by local great, Mike Miz. Jackie again lays down some nice grooves on organ and adds some beautiful texture and color to the smoking encore. We get sent home with a gorgeous and mellow, Long As I Can See the Light.

A night I won't soon forget and I'm so happy that I can relive it here on, as often as I would like.

Subject: Yet Another Great Show
At the RSJC! To the delight of the many music fans in Northeast Pa., there are many great musicians that pass through the doors of the Jazz Cafe. This is another perfect example. Opening act "MIZ" was a fitting kick-off to such a great evening of highly gifted artists expressing their craft. This was one of the best shows that I have seen at the Jazz and there have been many to choose from.
Download this show! It's worth the time and you won't be disappointed.
Also - Thanks to Keith for getting this show up so quickly. Great work by all involved!

Subject: 10 STAR RECORDING!!!!!!!!!!
I'd be willing to take a blind bet that you can't find a better non-soundboard JGB recording than what Keith has captured here!

FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE at thee best and most intimate small club in Northeastern PA!!
Went in expecting a good show and what we got was greatness!
Throw in some MIZ who played an absolutely jaw dropping opening set, not to mention Mikey joining the stage with JGB to close the night out absolutely killin' it on guitar!
Can't say enough about this show - what a great night at The Jazz.

Thanks Keith for another stellar recording.

Thanks to Jackie Green and Band for going off-road and stopping by.
and thank you Jackie for being such a down-to-earth guy and hanging with the crowd after the show - you really made a lot of people happy Wednesday night :)

Mike Mizwinski and his band "MiZ" opened:
